ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP


We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.

The Next Generation of High-Powered Microcontrollers

When you start working with physical computing the first thing pretty much everybody does is to blink an LED on, and off, again. When things were harder, this was a rite of passage. Just to get to the stage where you could turn an LED on, and then off again, could take a week or more of hard work. The arrival of the Arduino changed all that, relegating it to a simple parlour trick, a “Hello World” of hardware.

These days things are different, and while we’re reaching the end of Moore’s Law, we haven’t quite got there yet. Over the last few years we’ve seen a bewildering explosion in the number of microcontroller and single board computers. People have experimented with form factors and processors, and pretty much every board now comes with radios, sometimes lots of radios.
